    Quick question regarding .zip files...

    I am connected to a server at my work, and to consolidate space we have zipped up many of our bigger folders.

    The windows users at our company are able to gain access to those folders without unzipping the folder, but I have been unable to figure out how, if possible, to do it.

    Is it possible?

    That might help a little bit.

    As far as I know, Mac OS X is not capable of viewing .zip files, to see its contents, you have to extract it. Windows XP and the following Windows versions are capable of viewing .zip folders without extraction.
    But maybe there is also a Finder plugin or PathFinder could help you there.

    thanks a ton! I have never seen that plugin, but I downloaded it and I can already tell how helpful it is going to be!
